Look! David's Outdoor Dinner Party

When we wrote last week about hosting an outdoor dinner party in a public space, we heard back from designer David Hopkins. With no dining room or private outdoor space, David took to the interstitial space between his building and the next for a recent dinner party he hosted...

David made the long, narrow table himself by placing hollow core doors on card tables. And that awesome linear chandelier? He made that, too, with a framework of 2x4's and strings of clear lights. By nightfall, it looks like the chandelier and candles were aglow, transforming the gap between buildings into an inviting twilight retreat.

For more on David's private/public outdoor dinner - and lots of tips on entertaining on a budget - read this post by one of his dinner guests at Strange Closets.
